Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) This paper reports on an exploratory study of the processes involved in the acquisition of new phonetic control regimes in L2 learning. We focus here on the acquisition of long VOT initial stops by French native speakers. Francophone speakers were asked to repeat /ta/ stimuli varying in VOT and burst intensity (BI). The productions were analysed in terms of VOT, BI and duration of the following vowel (Dur). Results show that the speakers are fairly accurate in the imitation task. They exhibit more fidelity to VOT than to BI variation, more sensitivity to BI than to VOT variation, and a good potentiality to respond in terms of Dur (even though vowel duration is maintained constant). These results are presented in relation with the high interspeaker variation.
